Ivica Zubac came off the bench on Thursday and set a new career-high with 26 points, also pulling down 12 rebounds (tying a career-high) while shooting 12-for-14 in 28 minutes of action.
Zubac finished an incredible plus-35 in his time on the court, which makes you wonder what the heck happened when he was on the pine. JaVale McGee's illness really opened the door for him and Zubes has taken full advantage, though we're still skeptical that he plays consistently for the rest of the year. Even with this game he's averaging 12.5 mpg in January, so we'd limit his appeal to deeper formats despite the obvious potential for serious damage.
